MATERNITY

about my maternity sessions

Pregnancy is not just the beginning of new life its the start of a magical journey. A women becomes a 'Mother' and a couple becomes a 'family'. By booking a belly to baby photography package, its the perfect way to obtain a keepsake that precious time and creation of new life.

Sessions are best between 29-38 weeks. If you book too early, you're not going to get the full size and roundness of your baby. Or if you book too late, you may feel too uncomfortable (believe me I know) and baby might decide to come early and we would have missed the opportunity to capture your bump. We want to make sure you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible so It’s best to schedule our session during this time.

For your maternity session I always recommend you bring your immediate family with you; husband and any other children. Weather permitting, I like to get outdoors and do some lifestyle images. I like to shoot early afternoon/evening, this way we utilise the gorgeous and soft golden evening light. If you have any special locations, make sure to let me know so that we can make sure to work it into your session.

Once you have decided to confirm your pregnancy session, I will send you an info pack which details all the hints and tips, what to wear guide to make the most out of your session.
